ArgumentChecks

public final class ArgumentChecks extends Static
Static methods for performing argument checks. Every methods in this class can throw one of the following exceptions:
Exceptions thrown on illegal argument
Exception Thrown by
NullArgumentException ensure­Non­Null, ensure­Non­Empty.
IllegalArgumentException ensure­Non­Empty, ensure­Positive, ensure­Strictly­Positive, ensure­Between, ensure­Between, ensure­Can­Cast.
IndexOutOfBoundsException ensure­Valid­Index.
MismatchedDimensionException ensure­Dimension­Matches.
More specialized ensure­XXX(…) methods are provided in the following classes:

Method Arguments

By convention, the value to check is always the last parameter given to every methods in this class. The other parameters may include the programmatic name of the argument being checked. This programmatic name is used for building an error message localized in the default locale if the check failed.

  • Method Details

    • ensureNonNull

      public static void ensureNonNull(String name, Object object) throws NullArgumentException
      Makes sure that an argument is non-null. If the given object is null, then a Null­Argument­Exception is thrown with a localized message containing the given name.
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the argument to be checked. Used only if an exception is thrown.
      object - the user argument to check against null value.
      Throws:
      Null­Argument­Exception - if object is null.
    • ensureNonNullElement

      public static void ensureNonNullElement(String name, int index, Object element) throws NullArgumentException
      Makes sure that an array element is non-null. If element is null, then a Null­Argument­Exception is thrown with a localized message containing the given name and index. The name and index are formatted as below:
      • If the name contains the "[#]" sequence of characters, then the '#' character is replaced by the index value. For example if name is "axes[#].unit" and the index is 2, then the formatted message will contain "axes[2].unit".
      • If the name does not contain the "[#]" sequence of characters, then index value is appended between square brackets. For example if name is "axes" and the index is 2, then the formatted message will contain "axes[2]".
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the argument to be checked. Used only if an exception is thrown.
      index - the Index of the element to check in an array or a list. Used only if an exception is thrown.
      element - the array or list element to check against null value.
      Throws:
      Null­Argument­Exception - if element is null.
    • ensureNonEmpty

      Parameters:
      name - the name of the argument to be checked. Used only if an exception is thrown.
      text - the user argument to check against null value and empty sequences.
      Throws:

      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if text is empty.
    • ensureNonEmpty

      public static void ensureNonEmpty(String name, Object[] array) throws NullArgumentException, IllegalArgumentException
      Makes sure that an array is non-null and non-empty. If the given array is null, then a Null­Argument­Exception is thrown. Otherwise if the array length is equals to 0, then an Illegal­Argument­Exception is thrown.
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the argument to be checked. Used only if an exception is thrown.
      array - the user argument to check against null value and empty array.
      Throws:

    • ensureNonEmpty

      public static void ensureNonEmpty(String name, int[] values, int min, int max, boolean distinct) throws IllegalArgumentException
      Ensures that the given values array is non-null and non-empty. This method can also ensures that all values are between the given bounds (inclusive) and are distinct. The distinct values requirement is useful for validating arrays of spatiotemporal dimension indices, where dimensions can not be repeated.

      Note that a successful call to ensure­Non­Empty(name, values, 0, max, true) implies 1 ≤ values​.lengthmax.

      Parameters:
      name - the name of the argument to be checked. Used only if an exception is thrown.
      values - integer values to validate.
      min - the minimal allowed value (inclusive), or Integer​.MIN_VALUE if none.
      max - the maximal allowed value (inclusive), or Integer​.MAX_VALUE if none.
      distinct - true if each value must be unique.
      Throws:
      Null­Argument­Exception - if values is null.
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if values is empty, contains a value lower than min, contains a value greater than max, or contains duplicated values while distinct is true.
      Since:
      1.0
    • ensureExpectedCount

      public static void ensureExpectedCount(String name, int expected, int actual)

      Parameters:
      name - the name of the argument to be checked. Used only if an exception is thrown.
      expected - expected number of arguments.

      public static void ensureValidIndexRange(int length, int lower, int upper) throws IndexOutOfBoundsException
      Ensures that the given index range is valid for a sequence of the given length. This method is designed for methods that expect an index range as their only arguments. For this reason, this method does not take argument names.

      Parameters:
      length - the length of the sequence (array, Char­Sequence, etc.).
      lower - the user-specified lower index, inclusive.
      upper - the user-specified upper index, exclusive.
